Woodsmoke [Mens] Mountain shirt
The most comfortable shirt you’ve ever owned: a high-wicking, quick drying, odour resistant, temperature regulating shirt for an active mountain lifestyle
Bivvy, boulder, ride and climb. From working days outdoors in the mountains to seeking the haven of the refuge; riding the big mountain trails and high level alpine passes.
Woodsmoke is an innovation in mountain shirts. Made from ThermoTech® polyester with hollow core fibres that trap more air to give you more insulation, it has a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than normal Polyester, making it an ideal mid layer.
The brushed fabric is as comfortable as your favourite cotton shirt, but wicks moisture away from your skin and dries quickly. Along with the snap front closure for easy venting, this makes the Woodsmoke ideal for faster paced days outdoors, whether you’re hiking, biking, or climbing.
Woodsmoke’s stretchy brushed flannel fabric moves with you and feels incredibly soft on your skin. The articulated fit gives great freedom of movement across the shoulders, making it ideal for anything from riding until you fall upon camp for the night, to stretching for that elusive hold on your bouldering project. Chest pockets with secure snap closure are ideal for keeping your valuables safe.
The Woodsmoke shirt is treated with Polygiene odour control technology, so you can wear it all week in the Alpine summertime then wear it on the plane home too without ruffling any feathers.
ThermoTech® is a polyester fibre engineered to keep you warm and comfy from when you’re slogging up that Alpine pass to when you’re making you’re way back down again. Hollow fibres trap body heat to keep you warm and wick moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable.
What is Polygiene?
Wear more, wash less: it’s every busy adventurer’s dream…
We apply Polygiene™ to garments so that they smell less with wear and need washing less between use: ideal for that multi day getaway (and you’re doing your bit for the environment too).
Polygiene ™ is a silver based treatment that we apply during fabric production. The silver chloride prevents the growth of the bacteria that makes your clothes pong without interfering with the skin’s natural bacteria flora, so it’s comfortable and safe next to your skin. Polygiene ™ is bluesign ® approved (meeting the highest environmental standards) and lasts as long as your clothes do, so you’ll never need to reproof them.
The catch? There isn’t one! You can wear this garment day in, day out, and day back in again without causing a stink – winner!

My new favourite shirt
I bought this shirt specifically for lightweight cycle touring, where when I'm off the bike among other people I don't want to a) look like a cyclist b) honk like a goose. For this purpose it's superb - the fit is slim/tailored so it doesn't flap about like a flag, but there is plenty give thanks to the inbuilt stretch. The fabric has a nice soft feel, dries quickly and has a pleasing weight to it. I've sweated in it plenty and no smell issues so far. Smart enough to wear down the pub, nice discreet branding. It will get a lot of wear walking on the hills too. No particular issues with the label Highly recommendedm
A great shirt that feels good on, and also feels like a quality shirt.
Usual prompt Service from Alpkit!
Great riding shirt
I bought a woodsmoke shirt a couple of months ago for long distance gravel riding. I've used it for 3 multi-day rides and it is superb. Ideal for New Zealand autumn conditions (~15 to 18 degrees C) although it will be too warm for summer! Green colour is visible enough when cycling!!
Nice shirt - shame about the label
I saw this shirt in an email from Alpkit and bought one straight away. It arrived promptly and fitted really well. Nice feel to the fabric. Still to run it through the wash so no idea of shrinkage, but as it's 100% artificial fiber I don't expect it too.
Now to my gripe - why do clothing makers insist on putting labels in that have had their cut edges heat sealed? What you end up with is a nice little sawtooth rasp on the back of your neck, and the only solution is to cut it out, which is a shame as Alpkit's label is a nice little loop that you can hang the shirt with - except it comes straight out and in the bin.
That said, as always Alpkit have made a nice stylish comfortable shirt, that I hope will be part of my wardrobe for a long time to come - minus the label of course.
Looks pretty much like a bog standard cotton work shirt from the market, but with plenty hidden tech. A good combo. Clever cut, plenty stretch, extemely quick drying, keeps off a good breeze. I've been wearing mine mostly jacket style. If you plan to wear as a 'dress' shirt check the press studs on the placket, one of mine was set a little off centre and would affect the fit if you were going for a smarter look.
